Remember REACH in Your Will
You may choose to remember REACH in your will. The easiest and most direct way to make a charitable gift is by an outright bequest of cash in your will. Making an outright bequest requires only a short paragraph in your will that names REACH and states the amount of your gift. We urge you to work with a qualified estate attorney in preparing your will and naming beneficiaries. Should you choose to include REACH in your will, you will need the following information:

Gifts of appreciated securities (stocks) are a great alternative to making a cash gift and may offer you additional tax advantages. In addition to receiving an income tax deduction for the full market value of the securities, you may also avoid capital gains on the appreciation of your stocks. REACH works with RBC Wealth Management for stock transactions. Click here for instructions on how to donate stock to REACH.
Beneficiary of an IRA or Retirment Plan
If you have funds in an IRA (Individual Retirement Account) or employer-sponsored retirement plan, you can name REACH as a beneficiary. Naming REACH can provide double tax savings. First, the charitable gift will be deductible for estate tax purposes. Second, REACH will not have to pay any income tax on the funds we receive. This double benefit can save combined taxes that otherwise could eat up a substantial portion of your retirement account.
Donation of Property
Transfer the values that are important to you by making a gift that will keep on giving. Depending on your situation, a legacy gift to REACH can help you manage your personal financial plan and extend your ability to help others. When you support REACH’s work in our community by leaving a bequest in your will, acquiring an annuity, or making a gift of appreciated stock, real estate, or other assets, you are helping make the world a better place for future generations.
